    New to the HK world, so forgive me...

    I know in the Corps, we set our sights to 300m and actually gave our rifles a BZO at 30m. Now, how can I apply the same methodology to a HK? Should I set the rear peep to "3" and just take it from there? Or should I use the open "v" sight?

    Thanks for any help or advice. :confused:

    If you want to do it the German Army way, don't use the battle sight V. That one's only for low-light and wooded environments, and aiming short-range full-auto bursts (last-ditch breaking of enemy assaults, or anti-aircraft fire). For all other applications, the V is too coarse.

    Sight it in on the 200 m dial and take it from there...you'll hit a little high at 100. The "2" setting is also the default setting for the sight, and you only change to "3" and higher if needed for long-range blasting. It shouldn't ever be on "V" unless it's dark outside or you're getting ready to shoot full-auto.

    (Our rifle was the G3 in 7.62x51, but the HK93 has an identical sight aperture.)

    The G3 armorer's manual describes the '2' aperature as the 100m sight.

    I'd dial in a HK33/93 similarly.

    Due to differences in sight height between the HK and M16, the first zero distance will be different (ie: probably not 30 yds for a 300 yd zero).

    I'd actually get to a 200 yd range and zero it for real. You can use a ballistic calculator to help determine where the bullets are going in between.

    Marines really zero to 300? I thought everyone did 200, and then dialed for further ranges. Huh.

    Don't forget the Phillips head screwdriver. :)
